CNN Anchor Speechless After Congressman Questions Syria Chemical Attack Narrative

Tyler Durden's picture


A CNN anchor was left speechless Wednesday during a televised interview when a congressman questioned the mainstream narrative that Bashar al-Assad attacked his own people with chemical weapons this week.

“It’s hard to know exactly what’s happening in Syria right now. I’d like to know specifically how that release of chemical gas, if it did occur — and it looks like it did — how that occurred,” Representative Thomas Massie told CNN’s Kate Bolduan.

Continuing, the Kentucky congressman asked the question so many who doubt the established line have asked in the past: Why?

Because frankly, I don’t think Assad would have done that. It does not serve his interests. It would tend to draw us into that civil war even further.”

Note that the corporate anchor’s expression snaps to attention the instant she realizes Massie is doubting the narrative.

Bolduan, visibly taken aback by what the man is saying — as though it were inconceivable a U.S. lawmaker might have an original opinion on matters — fumbled for words a few moments before managing a simple: “Who do you think is behind it?”

Massie began to answer, but Bolduan cut him off. Unsurprisingly, she asked him directly if he was saying he believes what the Russians are saying — that Assad had nothing to do with the attack that killed dozens in Syria on Tuesday. Reuters reported Wednesday that the attack has sparked renewed calls to oust the country’s president.

The Kentucky congressman stuck to his guns, however, reiterating his earlier position:

“I don’t think it would’ve served Assad’s purposes to do a chemical attack on his people…It’s hard for me to understand why he would do that — if he did.”

The CNN anchor, clearly at a loss for words, thanked Massie for his time.

What does the Religious Left believe in any more?  I can't figure that one out.  They seem to have lost all sight of any sense of reality, decency, or humanity.  There is nothing left but nihilism and emptiness.  Good job, lunatics.

That bitch looks angry, needs a good dicking me thinks. Who's up to take one for the team?


You could fuck that bitch into the middle of next week, but you aren't gonna like it, or change her self righteous attitude. 

Might as well fuck a meat grinder. Same result, mentally and physically.

So let's get Tulsi Gabbard on there with some solid intel to defuse this. She might be feeling the heat right now, but I like her style.

You can like her on facebook if you have a facebook acct. She's quite active on there. I like her foreign policy ideas but much of her domestic policy is typical democrap bullshit.

Not true!  If she were at home raising children she would be happy.  If her husband was dropping loads into her constantly, she would be gettting happy injections.

This whole letting women have the vote, and enter the workforce has made them very unhappy and unnatural. Women are a real problem, now that they are "free" to choose, and they choose badly.


Semen contains another of chemicals along with spermatozoa, including cortisol, which is known to increase affection, estrone, which elevates mood and oxytocin, which also elevates mood.

It also contains thyrotropin-releasing hormone (another antidepressant), melatonin (a sleep-inducing agent), and even serotonin (perhaps the best-known antidepressant neurotransmitter).

The smug look on her face is typical of Confabulation News Network. He is an accomplished elected rep and she is most likely merely a PE major who made it into TV by being semiattractive, yet the attitude of someone daring to disagree with a CNN TV fakster is astounding.

Very typical of the left wing Libtards --- react in disgust to anyone who dares disagree with their left wing views. If he had been closer she might have slapped him keeping with left wing reaction to disagree-ers.

First they came for the the Taliban, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not an Afghan.


Then they came for Saddam, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not an Iraqi.


Then they came for Gaddafi, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Libyan.


Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for Syria.


-Bashar Assad

But when you do speak out, you are labeled a lunitic in the wilderness.  No one is allowed to hear.  That is what media control is all about.

LOL Assad is literally between a rock and a hard place. The USA is Jack Palance.

I used to think those on the left were just mentally ill, it turns out they're dangerous psychotics. 

The ONLY person confirmed to be dealing with Russians was Hillary's campaign manager John, we simply must have a months long investigation into trying to find out how many Russians are living under the beds at Trump Tower, culminating in, the revelation that Mzzz. Susan Rice is doing a very much Soviet-Stasi-style surveillance act on President elect Trump.

Because...Murica dammit!!!...lmao!...geeez what a bunch of fucking retards.

NoPension's picture

Maybe I'm not processing this correct..but...with General Mattis running the show at a Defense....I find it hard to believe he goes along with offensive bombing without undeniable proof of what actually happened.

Perhaps, and I'm giving Mattis and Trump the benefit of the doubt...they have better intel than CNN.

I hope.

nmewn's picture

Well it looks like a lot of this is being driven by NBC of the "he looks black to me" and exploding gas tanks fame. It would be out of character for Trump to do a pre-announce strike but who knows, maybe they know something we don't.

Still strikes me as odd that Assad would do what he is accused of doing, he's winning now so strategically and diplomatically it doesn't make sense that he would gas some civilians. Its not like there was a major offensive into the neighborhood hanging in the balance, there was no military gain.

But there was a propaganda gain for one side, which should raise suspicion all by itself.

Mr. Universe's picture

How hard would it be to convince those that need to know that the source was Syria? No motive, no crime. Oh wait, there was a motive...the US needs a war to feed the MIC.

Statism is a substitute religion for weak minded people who need.the comfort of a belief system imposed on them from outside.  It grants absolution for all your transgressions and baser instincts.  It provides rules for following without the burden of thiught, intelligence, consideration or personal responsibility.

It embraces itz own brand of magical thinking, the secret government agencies who have godlike power, demand unquestioned loyalty or else, and act in ways mere mortals cannot understand.

TheReplacement's picture

There is no, and never has been, a religious left.  That is, unless you consider faith in the power of a few men rather than God over the power of everyone else to be a religion.

You laugh, but I remember touring in Beijing and one woman using that exact phrase - "The PLA fights for our freedom!"

I don't know why, but hearing that phrase, in that context, changed my views radically.

Just so much confusion about Syria in the posts. 

Some facts: In 2016 under OBAMA, the US dropped over 12000 bombs on Syria and over 100,000 Bombs in the Middle East Theater. America, under OBAMA, has laid waste to Syria. In a word: A REAL MESS

Who knows what the HELL happened when so much military ordinance was dropped of the last 5+ years?

One thing is certain: GOD has a plan for Syria no matter who committed attrocities and ISRAEL is in the prophecy. In the book of Isaiah 17:1-3 is a prophecy that has pretty much been fulfilled for Syria. It is listed below:

Isaiah 17:1-3

A Prophecy Against Damascus

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. 2 The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. 3 The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,”declares the Lord Almighty.

Is America spose to be in Syria? That is the real question. Maybe it is time we leave since we have done enough damage.

Well, and her argument is "Who are you believing, then?"  Like our guys are the most credible, therefore what they said is true.  Probably not going to see Massie on CNN much going forward.

The Middle East situation is a messy business for America.

And who do we have to thank for the mess? OBAMA/CLINTON and their reign of terror.

I believe in the GOD of the Bible and he will hold all to account for their actions.

Ronald Regan once asked the question: Is GOD on our side or are we on HIS side?

America, what ever She does as a nation, may it be pleasing and acceptable to the Lord!

you stupid fvk, the bush cartel with their 9/11 is why we are in the ME doing israel's dirty work.


GUS100CORRINA's picture

You are very WRONG. I am very much informed on this situation and have presented on the subject. It is OBAMA/CLINTON reign of terror dropping 100,000 bombs that laid waste to Syria. By the way, throwing ad hominems really doesn't do anything for anyone GUTTER MOUTH! Syria has been laid waste and America under OBAMA/CLINTON is responsible!! The TRUMP TEAM has one HELL OF A MESS to clean-up after the PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL disaster.  

Try not to show your ignorance by posting crap like this line below.

"you stupid fvk, the bush cartel with their 9/11 is why we are in the ME doing israel's dirty work."

I WILL REMEMBER who and what you are ... so be very concerned!!!
